Shaw Forest Park Leachate Treatment Wetland
Client: Swindon Borough Council
A multi-cell design was required to overcome site constraints,
which included a high voltage electricity cable and sewer
running through the centre of the site. A settlement pond, wet
grassland (for ammonia removal) and a series of different plant
communities were incorporated to maximize treatment and
attenuate storm water. A wildlife pond provides final polishing
and added biodiversity value to the treatment system.
The design also had to incorporate public access to the site.
A community pond at the outfall was included and will be
planted and maintained by local community groups.
